Reading a Reiss summary just now and two pieces stood out: 1. Shank was finally seen in an ankle wrap 2. Branch still has locker set up Now I've independently seen some speculate Shank is on the squad now only to be IRd post Sep 4 and that Branch was cut to be re-signed after the season starts so his salary is not guaranteed. It wasnt until reading this Reiss summary just now that I put together what could be a very astute roster management by BB. Cut a vet like Branch who you know you can make gentlemans agreement with so that you can keep Shank to take advantage of new IR and then promptly re-sign Branch when the spot opens up. Thoughts?
